HENDERSON, N.C. -

An 84-year-old man was shot to death in Vance County Monday by his 11-year-old grandson after the elderly man shot his 49-year-old son during a fight.

The Vance County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to a fight at 430 Cricket Creek Lane in the southern part of the county around 7 p.m.

When they arrived, deputies found Lloyd Woodlief, 84, suffering from a 12-gauge shotgun blast, the sheriff's office said. He died shortly after from his injuries.

Deputies said the man had been shot by his 11-year-old grandson after the 84-year-old shot 49-year-old Lloyd Python Woodlief, of 450 Harrington Lane in Henderson, with a 22-caliber pistol during the fight. The 49-year-old has been identified as the 84-year-old's son.
